Another of Santo Domingo’s architectural masterpieces with its arches made of travertine marble, the Teatro Nacional Eduardo Brito has been operating since 1973 and is the country’s most prestigious arts facility. Surrounded with museums inside Plaza de la Cultura, and named after a famous Dominican opera singer, the theater hosts plays as well as musical performances—including operas and the National Symphony Orchestra—and major award events year round. Boasting three halls, the largest can seat up to 1,600 patrons.
